Emergency Preparedness

The Mee Memorial Hospital (MMH) is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for patients, visitors, and staff. Hospitals play a key role in the nation’s emergency preparedness and response as part of America’s health care infrastructure. As part of this standby role to communities, hospitals are pivotal to disaster-response activities, whether they are rural, critical access hospitals (CAHs) or Level 1 trauma centers. Emergency preparedness requires a significant investment in staff and resources. It requires constant staffing of the emergency department, laboratories, the radiology department, pharmacy, surgical services, general and intensive care units, labor and delivery and other areas.

The Hospital maintains a partnership with public and private organizations to support and assist the on-going operation of the Hospital in the event of a disaster.
